Totally agree. It occurred to me watching, like what if Bouwman just stops closing gaps and let one of the other three just ride away? Schmid would be content to just end up 4th as long as he beats Bouwman? I guess QS's strategy is wheelsuck a guy they think wants to win, as long as they don't lose by putting their neck out on the line? Like what are they even doing in this Giro besides sheparding old man Cav around.
Not like Bouwman didn't ride in the most boring way possible himself on the last climb while being the nominally best climber in the group.
 
Looks like Giro would really like for Pogi to participate in the near future:


From ideas for Giro to visit Slovenia again in 2023. To ideas of having a hilly ITT or MTF on Višarje. One slight problem as currently the (asphalt) road is missing. If such project would go through then basically Zoncolan would get some competition.

Don't want a Zonc like MTF. Also what would be wrong with Mangart?

Mangart would be great. Just yesterday I made a route with Nevea, Vršic and Mangart. Then you can start in Ljubljana the next day and have Kolovrat and Matajur on the way to Cividale del Friuli.

EDIT: This is only using roads that have featured in the Giro in the past decade:
